BROWNING-FERRIS INDUSTRIES RECEIVES PERMIT FOR BFI OTTAWA COUNTY LANDFILL

 BROWNING-FERRIS INDUSTRIES RECEIVES PERMIT FOR
 BFI OTTAWA COUNTY LANDFILL
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Browning-Ferris Industries (NYSE: BFI) announced today that the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a permit to install for the BFI Ottawa County Landfill at 530 North Camp Road in Port Clinton, Ohio.
 Issuance of the permit will allow BFI to expand the landfill site from 61 acres to approximately 83 acres. This expansion will enable the BFI Ottawa County Landfill to sevice the surrounding communities for the next 10 years. The daily volume at the site allowed will be three thousand tons per day.
 "The timing was absolutely crucial," said Dave Vossmer, BFI district manager. "We had to cut a lot of the volume that was coming into our site in order to preserve the valuable disposal space that was left. Now that we have a permit in hand, the local solid waste district that we service can expect safe efficient disposal the next decade."
 BFI will begin construction in the next year on a best available technology liner system which includes both natural and synthetic barriers to protect the environment. Landfill operation will also include a liquid collection system. The system consists of a series of pipes which conduct the liquid to holding tanks where it will be tested and hauled to a permitted treatment plant.
 Browning-Ferris industries is one of the largest solid waste publicly held companies engaged in providing waste services. Subsidiaries and affiliates collect, transport, treat and dispose of commercial, residential and municipal solid waste and industrial wastes. BFI is also involved in recycling servicing more than 150,000 homes in curbside programs across the state of Ohio.
